    • RER to CDG or Shuttle service

      France Jul 17, 2016 at 10:04 AM

      Have been to Paris previously. This trip my hotel is near Odeon metro stop & St. Germaine. I took RER to CDG last time and had no delay and service was good. Is it easy to get to RER from this location? Hotel is Grand deBalcons. Or, is a shuttle service better choice, and not too expensive. If I can get picked up at hotel would consider shuttle. Need to get there for A/F flight to Copenhagen leaving 1:40pm on a Saturday. Think I got RER last time from GareduNord so RER might be fastest service. Thank you to all for assistance.

      Hi. I would like to take the RER E train to Gard Nord. Does anyone know where the entrance to RER E is at St Lazare? Is it in St Lazare Station or is it on Haussmann Blvd? The reason I am asking is that coming from Gard Nord to St Lazare, you have to walk from Blvd Haussmann (where the RER leaves you) to St Lazare Station.

      Quirky restaurant

      Nice Jul 10, 2016 at 10:48 AM

      Years ago we ate in a restaurant in Nice that was owned by an elderly woman and her sister or daughter (can't quite remember). It was in the old town and it was very basic, I don't think there was even a menu, you just ate what you were served. It was all local, homemade food. Can anyone tell me the name of the restaurant and whether or not it's still there?

      Thanks!

      Inexpensive TV-set to buy or rent

      Nice 14 hours ago

      Hi folks! Don’t laugh!!!

      Yes, we Russians are badly salaried, but can get quite extravagant when our long-waited-for vacations are nearly ruined.

      Where do I get a very inexpensive but very usable TV-set in Nice? Buy or rent?
      And how do I get it connected?
      And how do I do it very urgently, because I am really furious at the prospect of forgetting how the French TV anchors look in France, while I can easily see the in my TV in Moscow.
      (Actually, this is not the only and not the main problem that made me the most furious of all time through my 10 years vacationing in Nice, but that’s another story)
      The provider in the apartment is called ‘numericable’ - there is Internet, and, I guess, there must be a connection to cable TV, if there were a TV-set here. I have already contacted their online ‘chatterbox’, she is a machine and solves no problem, even as I wrote in pretty sensible French.
      P.S. The parent company is SFR – I guess they have an office at Jean Medecine, or around. WIKI says they are the ‘leading provider’ in France.
      I’ll be d---d, really, if I do not find a TV-set, get it going and leave as a present to the owner! I can understand that one can have no functioning tea kettle, no single pot that matching any cover, but no TV – that’s too much. What am I supposed to do at night – go to a night club?

      How to: TGV to TER at Poitiers Gare

      by maxjasper Online Now Mar 28, 2016 at 10:26 AM

      Hello folks,

      I will have a train change at Gare Poitiers, TGV to TER. TER is 2nd class and my ticket shows neither a VOITURE# nor a PLACE# but only says "SANS RESERVATION". I will have only 12 minutes to find my PLACE on TER. I will not carry much luggage but have no clue how to proceed to my TER and which VOITURE and which PLACE!

      Last year I had the opposite change from TER to TGV and was easy to find my PLACE from GARE monitors & COMPOSITION DES TRAINS monitor.

      But this one I never experienced. I hope someone here can give me some helpful guidance.

      Many thanks in advance.heart
